this as the four horsemen of the apocalypse coming is liquidation. >> does your reporting suggest that harry reid has in fact explicitly rejected as a senate leader, a request by the republicans to add more flexibility to the cuts? >> well, we don't know that in particular, but what we do know is that the white house, they had an official down in front of the senate he recently and they were asked about giving this, being given this flexibility provision and they ultimately came back and said, we would reject any efforts to actually lessen the pain of this sequester. and so, the president here is getting himself into a situation where he's warning about all of these doom and gloom. the republicans are giving him a way out of this and they're increasingly looking to be rejecting that just so that they can continue to bring down the hammer. >> and the president, dan, is insisting not just on other spending cuts, alternatives, or even weakening the cuts, he's saying, look, i want a tax increase, too. >> what is that all about? i mean, we just had a huge tax increase, that is already, according to th

. how d special report? how are you doing. >> reporter: good morning, bill. bill: harry reid is talking about this potentially on the floor of the senate. if there is news we'll bring it to our viewers. graham says the debate is not over, it has not been serious. what gives? >> reporter: a couple of things, one is confirmation hearings matter. this was not a good showing for chuck hagel in this confirmation hearing and despite the fact that you have other controversial cabinet nominees who have potentially bumpy confirmation hearings hagel's did not go well, and even folks on the democratic side will acknowledge that, and that has made it even more difficult. then you have the additional problem, from his supporters' point of view, that there are calls for speeches that did not come out for the committee that hagel gave and they never received, and now you have one speech, for example, that a group says that they can get to the committee by friday. its already out of committee, but -- so now it's on the house floor. this vote happens, they need 60 votes. democrats have a 55-45 vote marg

is a prime example in places like new york, new jersey, california. gun control is popular. but harry reid also has democratic members from places like west virgina, arkansas, louisiana, and alaska where gun control can be dirty words. here is senator reid speaking recently about his conversation with california's dianne feinstein about an assault weapons ban. >> she's talked to me about her assault weapons ban, a new one. she believes in it fervently and i admire her for that. i will take a look at that. as i have indicated to you folks, we'll have votes on all kinds of issues dealing with guns and i think everyone will be well-sized to read the legislation before they determine how they're to vote for it. >> reporter: so a tricky act ahead for senator reid as he balances risking his members and their re-election bids in 2014 and 2016 and going ahead with the president's agenda. bottom line, he has some serious work ahead and it will be interesting to see what comes out from the president's pep talk with members today. jenna? jenna: i know you read all the legislation by the way before an
